As advertised, Hilary Duff is coming to Gossip Girl in the teen drama's new season, and the singer-actress was spotted on the New York City set Monday afternoon.
The Duffster is set to play a famous film star named Olivia who ends up studying at NYU with some other characters (Dan, Blair, Vanessa, Georgina, Scott, etc).
Here's Hilary and her rumored love interest, Penn Badgley:

In other guest star news, Gossip Girl signed Tyra Banks to appear on the show this season, reportedly as a character in a faux movie starring Duff's character.
Is this a sign of the show getting more notoriety and credibility, or of jumping the shark? Should we see more of Blake Lively in low-cut tops instead?
What do you think, Gossip Girl fans?
